Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Houston Museum District and Buffalo Bayou Park. Next up on the itinerary: engage your brain at Cockrell Butterfly Center, explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, contemplate the long history of Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, and gain insight at Rice University Campus.

For photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Houston route planner.
